"I still have a lot of things on my mind. I want to accumulate titles, win one or more Champions Leagues and with my national team I obviously want to win the World Cup, it would be the apotheosis for me."

Benzema went on to add:

"It would be a dream come true, something extraordinary, and we will do everything possible to achieve it."
